      #29224 - 03/03/02 04:48 PM

This should help you diagnose your condition by the symptoms. No tests are necessary. (They almost always give false negatives.)

1) Do you have floaters in the eyes?
No - keep reading.
Yes - you have CMV retinitis and full-blown AIDS.

2) Do you have a sore throat?
No - keep reading.
Yes - you have cancer of the throat.

3) Do you have a swollen lymph node (> 0.5 cm, anywhere)?
No - keep reading.
Yes - you have a lymphoma.

4) Have you ever suffered from headaches?
No - keep reading.
Yes - you have brain cancer.

5) Is your pulse greater than 60 beats per minute?
No - keep reading.
Yes - you are having a heart attack.

This should help.

This is a place for people to get info that might help them. There is no need to be so sarcastic. For instance I'm sure some young people come here for info. So no matter how silly you find some of the questions, if it helps another isn't it worth it?
